Onyx Lounge in DTLA For 30th Birthday

Thinking about having a few friends come together at Onyx Lounge for my 30th birthday celebration for dinner and drinks. Ive never dined here. After grabbing some grub and drinks maybe go barhopping? Any thoughts? Tips? Thanks in advance!

  1. Never been to Onyx Lounge but there are a ton of bars nearby. Here's just a few I've tried/heard of.

    The Varnish is one of my favorite places for a drink -- a dark speakeasy -- but it's tiny and certainly not good for large crowds.

    Perch is a bit more of a walk -- haven't tried it but have heard only good things. Not sure you can go wrong with a nice rooftop setting that offers great city views. Definitely get a res way in advance.

    The Down and Out is always a good time. Pool, loud music, and mug shot photos.

    Seven Grand has a line out the door most times I pass it. My partying friends like it, haven't been myself.

    Hope that gets you started in your research.
